POPULAR MOVEMENTS, PUBLIC POLICY, AND PATIENCE

For the pro-life movement to be successful it must be a popular movement. Beyond strongly committed pro-lifers, it must attract enough support from the middle of the popular spectrum so that the legal protection of human life becomes national policy once again. To build as large a base of support as possible the movement must focus on the right to life as a single issue and be nonpartisan and ecumenical. (A diffuse, multi-issue "focus" invites disagreement and in-fighting, etc.) To make the movement effective, individual action and energy at the grassroots level must be coordinated and amplified with a national strategy. For the strategy to succeed in the face of determined and powerful opposition, it must include carefully designed intermediate steps that overcome and outflank the opposition on the way toward the ultimate goal. Adhering to these very principles has made NRLC successful in the service of the right to life cause.
